CHESTERFIELD – A Chesterfield man was arrested Tuesday on charges that he allegedly neglected his dog.
Carroll Edward Dyke Sr. was charged with cruelty to animals, according to Chesterfield County authorities.
The charges stem from a report from Oct. 11, when Animal Control units responded to Dyke’s home on the 9400 block of Lost Forest Drive near Chester to investigate the treatment and welfare of a dog.
Upon arrival, the investigating units found that the animal had died earlier that day. The remains were taken to a veterinarian for a formal necropsy.
Dyke will have to appear at Chesterfield County General District Court on Dec. 19. Cruelty to animals is a class 1 misdemeanor.
